Business and commercial premises can also be eligible for free or discounted energy efficiency products. The cost, if any, will depend on the type of business, type of area the light is being upgraded in, the type of product being replaced and current certificate price. See below for more

Calculating the amount of subsidy for any commercial project is a complex process in most cases because it depends, among other variables, on business activity conducted in each area being upgraded (Space Type).
Each Space Type is assigned between 1000 and 8500 annual operating hours (AOH) which determines the number of certificates (VEECs) and thus the level of subsidy for that Space Type. Most businesses will have 2-3 Space Types and the level of subsidy could be different depending on each space AOH rating. The table below shows AOH rating of typical space types.
